The University of North Dakota will participate in a new international test series called "World Space Walk 2013." UND showcased its NDX spacesuit in a global test program designed and led by the Austrian Space Forum.

The space suit experiments were carried out in Austria, North Dakota, Utah and even France. The experiments are a first step in developing a universal standard for comparing Mars analogue suits to determine the impact they have on the suit-wearers.
